    Of Wikileaks, and Project Veritas, The Enquirer, and Things. So, by now almost everyone has heard of the Wikileaks emails. Julian Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy overseas, fighting extradition on a charge of sexual assault up in Sweden. There have been a steady stream of drips of emails from Wikileaks, involving John Pedestal (Hillary heavy) and various-and-sundry. The Obama administration, and the Clinton campaign, have been going crazy trying to figure out how to suppress, discredit, or stop the leaks, or at least change the subject. They figured with the Octopussy scandal hitting Trump, the election...

    One of the laments of the Democrat has been that evil capitalists have been against “working families” (read: union labor) for the sake of profits; one example being the loss of jobs in manufacturing, or the destruction of the textile industry by shipping of jobs to lower-cost sites in Asia. The rejoinder of the right has been two-fold; first, that the union laborers priced themselves out of the market, and that many more jobs have been lost to mechanization and automation than to offshoring, and that the new knowledge jobs of the future depend on mathematics (e.g. designing and programming...

    In a prior piece, Where the Body Is, The Vultures Are Gathered, or, For Whom the Toll Peals Part I, I introduced the concept of transactions, values, and prices, for both labor and finished goods. In this section, I continue, looking at the Marxist theory of value and its applications and misapplication to the present day, and then move on to newer and/or more complex economic situations. We have seen how quickly an example of a simple exchange, between a blacksmith and a villager, becomes very complex with just the addition of more villagers, more than one blacksmith, and the...

    The celebrated British apologist and essayist, G.K. Chesterton, had a good friend, Hilaire Belloc, who is now largely forgotten, but whose fame in his day caused George Bernard Shaw to refer to the pair as the “Chesterbelloc.” Among his many interests (such as writing a Foreword to a collection of P.G. Wodehouse short stories!), Belloc wrote a number of books and articles on the subject of economics. One of his most intriguing works was a book entitled The Servile State. In this book, written before the fall of the Russian Tsar and the rise of the Bolsheviks in Russia, Belloc...

    It is a commonplace now in certain circles that the era of the West is over. We are soon to be supplanted by the growing powers in Asia. Everyone knows about the pro-globalization, anti-American slant to the annual Davos conference in Switzerland. In another, similar conference in Dalian, China, (billed as the Asian version of Davos) one reporter stated that “several people described the United States as the Great Britain of the 21st Century and nobody disagreed..” And super-investor (and Soros crony) Jim Rogers is on record too, as quoted in Business Week: ”This is the China century," says Jim...

    Today (Monday October 1), the Rush Limbaugh radio talk show featured an astounding interview with Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, but I was equally intrigued by some of the programming which aired after the interview. As it turns out, a number of Democrats in the United States Senate (in conjunction with some liberal groups) have been trying to make a stink over some remarks Rush Limbaugh said in conversation, about our fine troops in Iraq. Well, not exactly. I listen to Rush on occasion, and I heard his original remarks—far from being disparaging of the troops, they were harsh words...

    This article is in honor or the opening of the latest session of the Supreme Court. There is a famous law in Physics known as Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle. If you have only heard of it in the mainstream press, you may have heard of it incorrectly. Some think it means that you cannot tell where anything is – like your car keys, or the last pair of socks in the dryer, only worse. The actual scientific definition is more complicated, and it says that you cannot simultaneously know the position and the momentum of a particle with infinite precision; in...

    During a recent campaign appearance, Hillary Clinton proposed the idea that each and every baby born within the United States be given a $5,000 baby bond in order to help pay for college or pay for a new house. The problems with this idea are too many and too obvious to mention here, but glaring difficulties have never stopped Democrats (or even politicians in general) before. In fact, one could argue that common sense and lack of patronage funds are a greater obstacle to politicians than anything else...but I digress. The question is (to use the Latin), “Qui bono?” That...
